Auditor general’s office hires ex-official charged in Tory election spending scheme

"She does not work on audits," says spokesperson

The Conservative party’s former chief financial officer, charged last week in the “in-and-out” election spending scheme, now holds a job in the office of the auditor general of Canada. Susan Kehoe currently serves as secretary of the Canadian Council of Legislative Auditors, an association of federal and provincial auditors which operates out of the federal auditor general’s office. Kehoe could face fines and jail time if she is convicted for Elections Act violations related to advertising purchases in the 2006 campaign. The office says Kehoe is not involved in any review of government expenses.
